1. An independent series with different weighting and different prices from 
those included in the "Total Index". Prices include subsidies. Prices used for 
western wheat, oats and barley are initial payments to farmers plus retro- 
active revisions to include participation payments as these are announced. 
The indexes for July 1954 and earlier months include final payments for all 
three grains. For the period August 1954-July 1955, oats and barley are 



included at final prices but wheat is introduced at the initial price. Subse- 
quent to July 1955 only the initial prices of the three grains are used. 
2. Components were selected and weighted on the basis of 1948 urban family 
incomes ranging from $1,650 to $4,050 with incomes between $2,000 and 
$3,000 most o

assets and liabilities (mainly cash balances and funded debt) which are 
payable in foreign currency. 

4. Revised from 1952/3 onwards. Includes Canadian contributions to the 
Colombo Plan, UN Technic 1 Assistance, UN' Children's Fund, UN 
Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, and UN Korean Recon-

1953/4 to the "Reserve for Po-sible I.o-es on Active Asset!.". The 1953/4 
deficit of 45.8, the 1954/5 deficit of 63.2, and the estimated 1955/6 deficit 
of 50.4 were charged, or will be charged, to Budgetary Expenditure in

1. Quarterly figures are available back to the beginning of 1947. The sources 
are the D.B.S. publications: "National Accounts, Income and Expendi- 
ture, By Quarters. 1947-1952" and "National Accounts, Income and 
Expenditure. First Quarter, 1955 and Fourth Quarter and Preliminary 
Annual, 1955". 

2. Accrued net income of farm operators from farm production. Thi9 item 
includes the undistributed earnings of the Canadian Wheat Board, and 
an inventory valuation adjustment for grain held by the Board. 

3. Includes net income of independent professional practitioners. 

4. Includes an estimate of capital outlay charged to current account, the 
claim portion of fire insurance premiums, and bad debt allowances. 

5. Includes expenditure by Federal, Provincial and Municipal governments. 
Capital expenditure by government bodies other than public business 
enterprises, changes in inventories of government commodity agencies 
and the Defence Production Revolving Fund are included in this item. 
However, shipments under NATO of previously produced military 
equipment are excluded but expenditure for the replacement of equipment 
is included. 

6. Includes capital expenditure by government business enterprises. 

7. In 1955 data were based on a redesigned and enlarged sample and some 
discontinuity with previous years may exist. 

8. Change in business inventories is the change in the book value. Change 
in "other inventories" is the value of the physical change in grain in 
commercial channels and inventories on farms. 

9. Excludes exports financed by Government of Canada expenditure on 
Mutual Aid and foreign relief. 

10. Minor adjustments have been made by D.B.S. to the figures of current 



receipts and payments t 
national Payments" to 
concepts. 

Includes both employer and employee contributions. 
This differs from the corresponding component of G.N.P. in that it 
excludes undistributed earnings (and inventory valuation adjustment) 
of the Canadian Wheat Board. 

Includes all government debt interest paid to persons. 
Includes transfer payments made by governments (except interest paid 
on transfer portion of the public debt), charitable donations from cor- 
porations and net bad debt losses of the corporations. In the G.N.P. 
account the latter are included in the item "Depreciation and Simil r 
Business Costs" and amounted to an average of 7.0 (unadjusted) and 28.(1 
(adjusted at annual rates) per quarter over the last 12 quarters. 
Includes succession duties and miscellaneous taxes as well as personal 
income taxes. 

The 1955 total has been revised upward from that shown in table "Capital 
Expenditures on New Construction, Machinery and Equipment*' on page 
49 to take account of later available information. 
Note on Seasonal Adjustment: Except in the ca 
seasonal adjustments are based on normal seasot 
effectsof abnormal seasonal influences, as w.n .;.. 
left in the seasonally-adjusted figures. In the c 



e of crop production 
al patterns, and the 
in-seasonal influences. 
;e of crop production 



the annual value is divided equally between the four quarters of the 
calendar year. For further information see the D.B.S. publications named 
in footnote I.

* The current account balances in 4th Qtr. of 1954 and 1955 with the United 
States were: -234 and -320: with the United Kingdom; +109 and +90: 
with all other countries; +39 and -29. 

1. Mutual Aid to NATO countries is not included in either current receipts 
or current payments. 

2. As used in the balance of payments, merchandise trade is adjusted to 
exclude such non-commercial items as settlers' effects, and tourist purchases 
which are covered elsewhere in the accounts. Since 1951, furthermore, 
payments for defence purchases by governments have been substituted for 
the actual physical movements of the commodities as reported in Customs 
trade statistics. 

3. A minus sign indicates an outflow of capital from Canada. 

4. Exclusive of undistributed profits.

5. This item includes mainly short-term capital movements in the form of 
changes in international open account commercial indebtedness, private and 
chartered bank holdings of exchange (including interest arbitrage invest- 
ments), and loans between private unrelated parties. It also includes the 
balancing item representing unrecorded capital movements and errors and 
omissions. Includes changes in holdings of International Monetary Fund 
and International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. 

6. Commencing in June 1954, the tabulation of import entries was altered 
from a customs month to a calendar month basis. This had the effect of 
adding approximately two extra days to June and thereby increasing the 
months imports by a substantial but indeterminate amount, thought to 
be at least 40.

1. Excludes conversions. From 1951 to 1955 these are estimated to have totalled approximately 3.5, 3.2, 3.8. 4.4, and 4.3 thousand respectively. 2. Based on a 

complete enumeration. 3. In areas outside the centres of 5,000 population and over, information relating to starts and completions is based on a sample survey. 
In the latter part of 1954 the sample was redesigned and enl.irecd and ,ome discontinuity with previous years resulted. There is probably an understatement of 
total starts and completions and of expenditures in 1954 and earlier vears. Total number of starts in 1956 is subject to upward revision when the results of the 
June survey are available. 4. Calendar year figures are the averages of 12 months. 5. Index of average hourly wage rates including holiday pay allowances. 
Annual data refer to the month of October each year. 6. Expenditures on work put in place. All figures to be revised later in 1956. * Preliminary.
